Finding Flexibility with Microservices, Containers, and Runtimes

Published By: Red Hat     Published Date: Jun 26, 2019

6 Tips for building a thriving help center

Published By: Zendesk     Published Date: Jan 19, 2018
Customers are more technically savvy than ever and have come to prefer the DIY approach to solving their issues and answering their own questions. Years of research by ICMI has confirmed that customers prefer to resolve issues themselves and within their channels of choice. Furthermore, customers only seek direct interactions when they unsuccessfully exhaust their self-service options. This is backed up by data from American Express, which found that 48% of consumers prefer to speak with a customer service rep when dealing with complex issues, but only 16% prefer the same contact for simple issues. The goal of this paper is simple: We want to help you build an all-in-one knowledge base, community, and customer portal. All of which can be accomplished with a help center like Zendesk Guide.

Open Identity Stack: Forging a New Future with Identity Relationship Management

Published By: ForgeRock     Published Date: Mar 10, 2015
Identity and Access Management (IAM) services were traditionally built for a company’s internal use, to assist with manual on and off boarding, and establishing access privileges to company data and systems behind the firewall. Today though, a company must implement a dynamic IAM solution that serves employees as well as customers, partners, and devices, regardless of location. ForgeRock embraces this shift from internal, on-premises IAM to Identity Relationship Management (IRM): public-facing, secure, and accessible identity as business enabler. ForgeRock’s next-generation IRM platform is designed to empower CEOs and enterprises to engage with consumers via new revenue-generating services, while continuing to maintain our proven traditional IAM capabilities.

Making the Most of Your CRM: How Best-in-Class Sales Teams Maximize Revenue and Customer Experience

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Mar 18, 2014
